Last Minute Florida Advice Please

Hi guys

Brother in law wants to book a holiday to Florida departing 14th April 2006 and I've been invited as well now :j.

Anyway he is quite fussy when it comes to accom so he wants to get a villa.

Best price we've found for 4 adult and 2 kids (12 & 15 y/o) is £3400 with Airtours and Platiunm Insurance on a 7 seater.

I looked at over car hire places but nothing better than £364 for the 7 seater with platinum insurance as 3 of us may drive.

Can anyone find us a better price from London airports.

Also may consider going end of may (coincide with school holiday) anyone know wot the weather will be like then? how busy etc

    yanky kids not broken up normaly then so not bad , you will get used to doing the florida shuffle in q s but its not so bad , just take a day off every few days to lie by pool and chill or drive to beach 1 or 3 hours depending which side you choose, we go in may always for cheapish flights , lowest 89 quid i kid you not book car seperate , , fill the fridge with nice food and wine beer and enjoy,

    Don't forget April 14th is Good Friday loads of Brits out there and flights expensive.

    Yeah don't I know it about the prices but brother in law kids off school so not much choice.

    Slightly cheaper flights on 13th.

    Any advice on flights?

    United Airlines or US Airlines?
